If you are planning to buy a kitten for your family, then you might decide to buy it from a pet shop, or you might also like it to buy it from a friend, who cat has just littered. But, as a responsible citizen, you also have another option, that is to adopt a kitten from a government licensed adoption center. Adopting a kitten from an adoption center will give you immense satisfaction when you think about the fact, that you are giving an animal a second chance to live their life. You are providing the kitten with a safe and stable home.
Kittens bring in a lot of happiness and pleasure in your life when you bring them home. Neither they are only beautiful to look at, but at the same time, they are also playful and mischievous in nature. Throw them a ball of paper, and enjoy seeing them bat that piece of paper all over the room.
In this article, we will see some of the things that you should know when you are out there in an adoption center, or breeding center buying kittens.
Firstly, you need to make sure that everybody is welcoming your decision of buying a kitten or in that matter of fact, taking up a pet. Kittens are very shy at first, and hence, if your family members are not ready to accept the kitten, it would be hard for the kitten to blend in. Moreover, if you already have pets in your house, see that they welcome and mix with the kitten well. You also need to check that none of your family members have an allergy to kittens or cats. Sometimes, many of us are completely okay with cats who have short hairs but are allergic to cats with long hair. Before adopting a kitten, you should completely be sure that you are not allergic to cats. To confirm, visit a colleague or a neighbor who has a cat.
Secondly, make sure that your children are tolerant towards the pet. Kittens are very tolerant, and they will go near the kid once in a while to play. Make sure that your child is also tolerant and plays with it. Sometimes, if the kitten has had a wary past, then it might get afraid when your child cries at the top of his/her voice.
Thirdly, if you are adopting the kitten, and if the kitten was with its mother and siblings, then, when you go to collect it, take a hand-comb, and comb the kitten’s family with it, so that when you take it home, you’ll have something which would smell familiar to the kitten.
Moreover, when you are adopting the kitten you should have everything ready for it like, a litter box and a litter, a post where it could scratch water and food bowls. You could also have some toys, with which it can play.
Lastly, kittens are very shy and can be not friendly at first. Hence, you should give them some time. Keep it in a carrier, from where it can see you and your family, and familiarize with the new condition.
